Keeping Still, Mountain


Keeping Still. Keeping his back still

So that he no longer feels his body.

He goes into his courtyard

And does not see his people.

No blame.


Mountains standing close together:

The image of Keeping Still.

Thus the superior man

Does not permit his thoughts

To go beyond his situation.

6. Noblehearted keeping still. Good fortune.

5. Keeping his jaws still. The words have order. Remorse disappears.

4. Keeping his trunk still. No blame.

3. Keeping his hips still. Making his sacrum stiff. Dangerous. The heart suffocates.

2. Keeping his calves still. He cannot rescue him whom he follows. His heart is not glad.

1. Keeping his toes still. No blame. Continued perseverance furthers.
